Bridging the Gap to success
Business In The Community, along with the help of Humanutopia, held an event at The Guildhall to Bridge the Gap between London based businesses and young people at risk. The event was aimed at students aged 13 to 14 who may be disengaged, or at risk of being disengaged at school.
School partners of BITC brought along their students whom they felt would benefit most from the event such as those who lack motivation to learn, lack in confidence and those who have real potential but may struggle academically. As we are partnered with Eltham Hill School, we went along to support the students and took part in several fun activities aimed to help motivate and inspire them.
“Personally I found the day very emotional, hearing the different struggles that teachers have with students but also hearing stories from the students of what life is like for them.” - Gemma Bowers, Learning and Development Director, Regular Cleaning Services.
We will continue to work with Eltham Hill School and do our best to offer the students and staff all the help and support were needed.
